Do the Jingle Bell Rock!

My favorite song to listen to during the holiday season is also my favorite movie!  White Christmas was my father's favorite movie to watch every Christmas and I have inherited his love for it.  Although he is not here, a part of him lives on each time I snuggle up to watch it.  So this song has inspired my holiday card.

(picture taken a little dark so you can see the sparkle in the pen)

I started with an all white theme, but felt it needed a little color.

For this card I used:
All cut files are from the Silhouette Store
Cuttlebug and Snowflake folder
Recollections Paper
DCWV Paper
Chomas Creations Pen Holder
Blue Gelly Roll Pen
Tim Holtz Distress Marker

Thank you for hopping along with us today!  Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday season.  Now head over to CallyAnn's to see her beautiful creation!
